Back from the French Rivera to grey clouds in London!

September 18, 2008

Hi fashionistas,

I hope you are well and life is treating you as it should.

I am back from the most fabulous holiday that I have ever had and completely in love with France, the French Rivera and Parisian fashion (if that’s even possible).

My love affair started with France a while ago and I have been to France before however this time has been the most magical and I suspect it has something to do with hot trotting across the most glamorous parts that France has to offer – Monte Carlo, Cannes and Nice.

I picked up some delicious pieces in an antique store in Monte Carlo two beautiful rings 1940’s and 1950’s and a pair of incredibly chic Chanel earrings dating back to the 1950’s. Who knows maybe it was Princess Graces?

The best beaches, clubs and fashion was in Monte Carlo, incredibly chic and fantastic. Women are confident with their bodies and opt for a sporty look and don’t skim on quality in the least.

The hottest places to go were La Jimmy’s, Hotel De Paris, Moods and The Living Room and the prints on display were predominantly Gucci and LV.

The most common bag on display was the Hermes Birkin bag which is rather ironic as there is nothing common about this hot little darling however I saw it sported in all colors on all types of women.

Togga platform gladiator for $79.99

August 28, 2008

I love these cute little Steve Madden strappy sandals with wooden platform and killer heels, they are just so fantastically chic with golden studded effect and gladiator straps for a quick midday fashion fix.

It’s hard to identify the best part of the shoe as I just love the whole thing so much! 

It’s eye candy for the fashion forward! These lush heels are available online at shoebuy.com on sale no less.

Happy shopping fashion lovers

Minimalism is under-rated!

August 14, 2008

Hi all, I’ve been posting all my goodies (that I never wear but still have tags attached) on Ebay and the whole thing is so time consuming. Just today I have received 5 questions such as – do you post to Bulgaria and how much would postage be then?, Can I buy it now?, what are the measurements of the jacket etc. etc. I love faux fur and I have loads that I don’t wear so I loaded it.

I just really need some space as it feels as if the whole apartment has become overrun with clothing and shoes and my boyfriend jokes that he’ll need to move out soon. The second bedroom has become my walk in wardrobe and then I also have a dressing room next to my bedroom so I can understand how we might want to use the space more constructively.

What is a fashionista to do?

What I find really interesting is how I love clothing but when it comes to decorating the apartment I am very into minimalist looks and then I stumbled across this article on Carine Roitfeld’s home and we both have similar minimalistic loves in terms of home decorating. However I would have gone for more white and more of a retro feel with quirky and showcase items to attract attention.

Carine Roitfeld’s home is featured in New Paris Interiors which features a seven page look at the apartment she shares with her partner Christian Restoin and has used as a backdrop for a few of her editorials. The space is clean and light colored which is in contrast to all the black she usually wears.

Numero’s first August Edition in Korea!

August 6, 2008

The magazine’s first August issue in Korea

Brunette’s may end up marrying more billionaires than blondes but the latest issue of Numero Korea shows that blondes still give brunettes a run for their money as far as the Icy Cool Blonde image is concerned. Model Sasha Pivovarova rocks their August cover. I heart the dark black eyeliner worn with  black tube dress, it’s simply minimalistic perfection for a blonde. This cover makes me yearn for my inner blonde!

 So back to the magazine, this is the magazine’s first August issue and to celebrate they recruited world renown photographer Camille Vivier to shoot the fashion editorial featuring Yoon Eun Hye (actress and model) and jetted off to France’s L’ Hotel, St. Germain, where the famous writer Oscar Wilde once resided.
